Motorola has officially revealed the Moto X smartphone that has been heavily leaked for the past few weeks. The device has over 2,000 customisation possibilities, and you can design things from the front to the back, the accents, the wallpaper, the memory and even add a signature phrase.
The Moto X has a 4.7-inch 720p HD AMOLED (316 ppi), a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with a 1.7GHz dual-core Krait CPU and a quad-core Adreno 320 GPU, two custom chips for always-on voice recognition and gesture controls, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (with a 32GB option exclusive to AT&T), a 2,2000mAh battery, and 4G radios. The rear camera is a 10-megapixel Clear Pixel and the front camera is a 2-megapixel. It ships with Android 4.2.2, which isn't even the latest version despite being owned by Google.
On the software side the Moto X features something called Active Notifications which allows the device to pulse when you miss a text or call and displays icons for your notifications, which is clearly a much better method than a blinking light. The device also has an option to always listen, which allows you to give it commands without touching it.
The 16GB model will retail for $199 with a two year contract on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and US Cellular, while the 32GB version will be a AT&T exclusive at $249 on a two year contract. AT&T customers will also be the only ones to have access to all the customisations, others will only offer black and white models.
